    This works for me. You just have to look for the files that are truly hi-res.

    I’m listening to some familiar albums with Dolby Atmos. To me it sounds like the music has been fed through a stereo expander effect. Going into this, I was expecting true multi-channel audio processed to stereo virtual surround which turned out not to be the case. Instead, I got the impression that Dolby Atmos music sounds like a remaster of the original.

    Nonetheless, from what I’ve heard, I think Dolby Atmos for Apple Music is well executed, because it sounds natural and cohesive and it doesn’t have the usual awkward signal processing artifacts and byproducts of simulated spatial/positional audio. I like it.

    Lossless and Dolby Atmos update is now officially available on Android. Newest update also has automatic crossfade feature.

    Got the dongles today. The lighting dongle didn't work on the iPhone because iOS says that the USB-bus powered DAC draws too much power. Using the Apple USB-C to USB-A dongle on the iPad Pro instead. Now trying Apple Music Hi-Res Lossless for the first time and...it works! I'll try the iPhone and lightning dongle again with an externally powered DAC next time.

    First impression is that the music sounds a bit brighter on the top-end and overall more detailed.
